How much are Walsall Buy-to-Let Yields a year?

Purchasing your first Walsall buy to let (BTL) property is not the same as buying one to live in.  You have to employ a completely different set of tactics, methodology and mind-set.

The main difference is when purchasing your own property, you may well pay a little more to get the home you and your family want, and are less likely to compromise.  When buying for your own use, it is only human nature you will want the best, so that quite often it is at the top end of your budget; because as my parents always used to tell me – you get what you pay for in this world!

Yet with a Walsall buy to let property, if your goal is a higher rental return – a higher price doesn’t always equate to higher monthly returns – in fact quite the opposite.  Reasonably priced Walsall properties can bring in higher monthly returns.  Most landlords use the phrase ‘yield’ instead of monthly return.  To calculate the yield on a buy to let property one basically takes the monthly rent, multiplies it by 12 to get the annual rent and then divides it by the value of the property.

Would you buy a leasehold house in Walsall?

Would you buy a leasehold house in Walsall?
Would you buy a leasehold house in Walsall?

Following on from last week’s article and my marathon break from the blog – I’ve had some interesting queries around freehold and leasehold property.  I have written about this subject in the past (click HERE for the previous article) however, the theme I’ve noticed amongst my blog reading friends requests is…’which one is the more beneficial?’

In total there are 23.36 million properties in England and Wales with 64% being of owner occupied tenure and 36% being rented (includes both the private and social landlords).

Over nine out of ten of those English and Welsh owner-occupied properties are a whole house or bungalow. Now, most people would assume they would be freehold – however, of those renting nearly half of rental properties, 44% to be precise, lived in other leasehold apartments and flats.

Walsall Properties…”How Much to Buy Them All?!”

Walsall Properties…”How Much to Buy Them All?!”
Walsall Properties…”How Much to Buy Them All?!”

My 14 year-old has started his GCSE’s this year. He wants to be a Chartered Surveyor as he loves buildings and anything to do with cars. He posed the fascinating question last week which got me thinking…

So this weekend, I sat down and calculated what the total value of all the properties in Walsall are worth … and just for fun, worked out how much they have gone up in value since he was born back in the summer of 2002! I used information from the latest census, land registry and the ONS.

So, here you are…

In the last 14 years, since the autumn of 2002, the total value of Walsall property has increased by 95% or £8.3 billion to a total of £16.1 billion. Interesting, when you consider the FTSE100 has risen by 68.9% and inflation (i.e. the UK Retail Price Index) rose by 38.7% during the same 14 years.
